As is traditional, the first day focuses on young designers, and the opening show of women swear spring-summer 2023 is that of 28-year-old Victor Weinsanto, a former dancer who studied under Gaultier before launching his label in 2020.

Weinsanto told AFP his collection is a “declaration of love” to his generation, inspired by fellow young designers.

Freshly decked out in bright orange hair, the designer said people were looking for “creativity, freedom, madness, and humor” in their outfits at the moment. “We want escapism,” he said.

Like many of his generation, there is a focus on sustainability and inclusivity.

The clothes are designed for “both mother and daughter,” he said. 

More than 100 brands feature in the official calendar for Paris Fashion Week. Almost all are back to live runway shows following the shift online during the COVID-19 pandemic, including Dior, Chanel, Balenciaga, Stella McCartney, and Issey Miyake.
